          Abstract

          Balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration (BRTO) and transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) are well-validated techniques in the management of portal hypertensive gastric variceal bleeding when medical management alone is not sufficient. However, despite their effectiveness, the adverse effects from both procedures make each technique more suitable to different cohorts of patient's depending on presence or lack of certain comorbidities. This study aims to compare clinical outcomes of patients who have undergone both procedures for portal hypertensive gastric variceal bleeding.
